Questions: Identification? Value? Genuine? Variety?

Though I have not identified this coin yet, there is a possibility that it may be a fake, as fake Chinese coins are very often mass produced and sold for a few dollars.

I am suspicious of this coin due to the following reasons:

- The toning, or black color on the surface reminds of the similar positioning of it on confirmed fake coins

- The details on the surface, such as the guy's face and the ship doesn't seem to be of high quality, that could either mean that it is quite worn, or a low quality fake.

As I am not an expert in authentication of coins, I would advice waiting for another opinion.
